Alex Rodriguez's surgery goes "as planned"
The procedure was performed by Dr. Bryan Kelly at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. A-Rod’s injuries were discovered after the Yankees’ elimination from the 2012 postseason, during which Rodriguez, 37, batted .120 (3-for-25) with 12 strikeouts against the Baltimore Orioles and Detroit Tigers. Subsequently, Kelly told reporters that A-Rod was unable to properly rotate his hips.
Until A-Rod is 100 percent, Kevin Youkilis, who the Yankees signed to a one-year, $12 million contract in December, will be the Yankees’ everyday third baseman.
